Dal Curry

It’s been almost a week since I sat down to type out a recipe. Life has been a bit crazy with lots going on, so I had to ease on at least one thing to keep me going, thus I ended up not posting any recipes this past week. Just in case you missed me, sorry for the silence … hahhaha …

I make a Dal curry on days where I want to make some indian but absolutely have NO time. When you read therecipeyou will understand why this is super easy to make.

I serve this curry with rice. Sometimes I also make a veg side dish or some masalafied (yes I made up that word!) boiled eggs or even some beef fry.

You can also use the dal curry as a base to add veggies like beans, carrots or potatoes. Often I have added potatoes to this and it makes it a very filling meal, especially for the little miss.
